ABC Mouse

This is the second time I’ve tried ABC Mouse. The first go around I thought you were stuck using age based curriculum only, I was very wrong. To get the most out of the service, changing grade level is done by clicking “options,” then parent, child settings. This is invaluable to homeschool parents, especially unschoolers who forge way ahead at any given time. 


Avon- Product Recommendation 

I’m an Avon Representative and although I don’t like to be forward(pushing products for profit)we ARE homeschooling and I have a teen and my son has a one year old baby girl so extra income would come in handy. 

I’d love to feel successful at my home based business like a lot of people, so I will share my favorite products from Avon and if I get a few customers I’d be forever grateful! I’d definitely offer some giveaways, discounts etc. if I did.

Here is a hand cream that works miracles on dry skin…

My daughter also uses it as a primer when she does my makeup!

You can shop my website through Avon here and it will be shipped directly to you!

Feel free to comment any questions about products and I will get right back to you.

Happy and Sad, Like Peanutbutter and Chocolate

Every day for all of my life I’ve been over emotional. That is, until approximately two years ago. Actually, it began slowly about five years ago but for past two years my emotions have been dead…completely gone. My brain has been foggy and I’ve felt like a visitor in foreign land inside of my own body.

I attribute this to many semi-(but common in today’s world)traumatic events occurring in the past thirteen or so years. Telling myself to be strong and tough, to suck it up and not be a cry baby really took hold all of a sudden and I proceeded to be a shell of my former self. My oldest daughter, Paige won’t even watch tear jerker movies with me because I’m like a statue with no emotions but I think that’s about to change.

In the past week or so I catch myself getting weepy at joyous things, sad things…I’m coming back to life! You have to have sadness to be happy, I’ve figured that out. Just like I’m always so paranoid about germs and getting sick…BUT don’t we always feel like a million bucks after recovering fully from a cold or flu? You have to have bad to appreciate the good.

It’s exciting to be excited about feeling life again! I’m looking forward to enjoying things like I used too but appreciating them much, much more!

Saturday, there was a little person here that always brightens our world, Miss Sophia, World’s Best Granddaughter!

Flash Card Fun

You either love or hate flash cards, I adore them! Like everything, all fc are not created equal. I love these from Trend(Jenna took off on the right track immediately!)They are straight forward.

I also make flash cards out of copy paper and Sharpie which is limitless. She’s working on two books and will be reading them completely soon. She’s five in December.

My Mom said I was a wonderful teacher, my reply was that I have a very eager student which is the best case scenario. I consider myself blessed and lucky…and honored.
